How can I install MySQL version 5.0.x to CentOS 6.3. The MySQL in CentOS 6.3 is version 5.1. The MySQL 5.0.x is required to run a slave database of a master database server running MySQL 5.0.x

Why not to use 5.1.x as a slave of 5.0? It's perfectly OK. I used to use 5.5.x as a slave of 5.0.x without any problem. – Alex Aug 9 '12 at 12:47
